Roscommon County Playday is this Saturday

Roscommon County Childcare Committee CLG are delighted to be holding their annual County Playday in line with National Playday on Saturday, July 1st, in association with Roscommon County Council and with support of local agencies. This year’s County Playday will take place in two separate venues in Roscommon: Somers Park, Castlerea (11 am-1 pm) and Loughnaneane Park, Roscommon (3 pm-5 pm).

There will be music, sports, fun and games for children to support the theme of the day, ‘Wonder and Discovery’. There will be arts and crafts, music generation workshops, outdoor play workshops, FAI Football and Roscommon Sports Partnership workshops, Lego block building for babies, storytelling, face-painting and a nature photo competition for teenagers. All these workshops/activities are free once registration is completed at our registration table, and all children must be supervised by parents/guardian.

“Outdoor play is vital to supporting children’s development, learning and wellbeing. It encourages a sense of adventure and discovery, helping young minds to better understand the world around them through fun and creative ways,” commented Roscommon County Childcare Committee CLG Co-ordinator/Manager, Irene Cafferky.

“This National Playday is an opportunity for local authorities to invite children and their families to come together in their communities and take part in a range of fun and exciting activities that everyone can enjoy.

“It is great to be able to once again coordinate and deliver Roscommon County Playday face to face in such lovely outdoor venues. The theme of the day will promote wonder, discovery and recreation for children, which supports child development. The activities planned will provide opportunities for children to explore, participate play and have fun. We look forward to seeing families and children enjoying the day”.
